Test facilities

PFIFFNER can carry out power frequency withstand tests up to a test voltage of 700kV, incl. partial discharge measurement. Lightning impulse withstand test voltages up to 1550kV are possible.

Swiss quality made by PFIFFNER

Before leaving the factory, every instrument transformer is subjected to routine tests. In the medium and high-voltage area, freedom from partial discharge under high voltage loading is measured, among other things. In this case, our internal test procedures are more stringent in part than those required by standards. Detailed measurements are made on every instrument transformer: the results are documented and their conformity to standards is reviewed.
